Great in-office morale is something that every company strives for as happy staff are productive and efficient for the company. Games are a great way to ensure that staff have an opportunity to engage with one another and become comfortable with trusting each other in the workplace. For employees, it’s important to know that they can rely and depend on their co-workers should any problems arise. In-office company games are a great way to foster these kinds of relationships between colleagues as it is a means to build trust, creativity, open communication and increase collaboration in the workplace.
There are various benefits attached to excellent employee morale:
- Increased Productivity
In a work environment where the employees are happy, productivity levels can sky-rocket. Employees are genuinely invested in the work that they do and they care about the outcome of their daily efforts. They feel driven to succeed in order to give back to the company. For example, in a sales environment, increased productivity will help generate more sales as your employees are motivated to work harder to increase company sales.
- Frequent Attendance
Now you may not realize this, but if your employees are not motivated to work, their only motivation is their monthly paycheck. How the company does in terms of business means nothing to them, they are more willing to take sick leave and unfortunately they will end up falling behind in their tasks. Happy staff are healthier than demoralized staff. Employees who have significant levels of engagement with the company and high office morale are always willing to go the extra mile for the company. They will do their utmost to ensure that they are at work and doing everything in their power to help make the company succeed.
- Self Esteem Boost
Recognition for working hard helps boost employee morale as well as workplace satisfaction. This gives your employee a much needed self esteem boost and allowing them to do so in a way that’s fun and exciting ensures that they won’t forget that moment. Allowing your employees to boost their self esteem through team development activities will help their workplace performance as well as how they interact with their colleagues.
